Delena is speaking in church today! She is a little nervous but I think she will do fine. She came over last night and read me what she has prepared and it was fantastic! She is speaking on institute and why we should attend. Just then I remembered why Delena and I started going to institute. We started last year going to a Marriage preparation Class. We loved it so much and it was a fantastic opportunity to be together and learn about the gospel. We learned so much and really loved our teacher. I highly suggest that anyone thinking about getting married should attend one of these classes, it really can open your eyes to a lot of wonderful things.
The time we spend together doing the things of the gospel have been so meaningful to me, we really have grown closer each day because of this. Last night we spent a few hours going back over her talk and adding some scriptures and quotes to give it a little umph! It was so fun working together on the things of the gospel.
Delena has an amazing testimony and I am so glad to be with her.
We just got home from church and I will tell---Delena did an amazing job. I was so impressed with her talk. Hands down hers' was the best talk given today in church. In fact I am not sure anyone even really prepared their talks as diligently as she had. I was very proud of her, I wish you could have all been here to see it. As she gave her talk and we went through the day, I realized that March was the month. I need to plan this month to formally get engaged with Delena! AHHH!! That is so scary, but I am ready and it is time.
I will keep you all updated!
